    PC Crashing

    How can i find out what is causing my PC to crash. about 10 minutes after i boot up and start working, the PC freezes and i have to reboot. I am not sure what the cause is or how to figure out why its happening. I did a Memtest and everything was fine on that front. Any suggestions?

    What version of Ubuntu? To find out run and post results of:
    Code:

    OK. Your kernel is up to date and hosted on a relatively fast system. I think you have a number of things to rule out. Has this problem persisted ever since installation of the OS? If not, what did you do right before it first appeared? The system logs are your best friend in a case like this.

    Its been happening for about 2 weeks now. I'm getting the feeling it has something to do with Chrome, it seems be open everytime i crash. Where can i get system logs from?

    How did you download Chrome? You could try installing it and see if the problem still occurs.

    Easiest for Chromium: go through Ubuntu Software Center. Note that Chrome and Chromium aren't quite the same. Chromium is 100% open-szource.
